There 2 screws on the bottom edge, one on each side, then there is a ***** on top at just beyond the lip of the window. Then it will come off of the machine.

Why does my machine not extract shampoo from carpet?


Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood.A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.

Make sure the tank lid is aligned to the recovery tank to seal, and assure the square panel is in place on the front of the recovery tank that connects the vacuum of the tank to the clear nozzle plate.

Why is the recovery tank on Hoover f6212-900 not filling up?


Hello! There are a few things that can cause the cleaner to lose suction. Please try these quick steps.

1. Remove the dirty water tank.
2. Clear the filter screen of any dirt or debris.
3. Turn the cleaner on, check your motor suction by the filter screen.
4.. Replace the dirty water tank making sure it is flush to the cleaner on all sides.
5. Lift up on top of nozzle and slide off cleaner.
6. Wipe debris off nozzle and front of cleaner with a damp cloth.
7. Replace dirty water tank.

If you felt suction by the filter screen your suction should now be restored. Hope this was helpful!

Why does my steamvac not suction the water up?


Typically there is a little red filter accessible from the bottom of the cleaner. Lay it down and flip it over to take a look. It's a little screen like filter. Large particles than can possibly cause a clog are filtered out there. Just pull it out (it will only come out part way) and clean the debris from it.

I have a Hoover Steam Vac also. Learned that trick the hard way. If that's not the problem (it usually is) then I will need the model number from your machine. Hopefully they didn't put it on the bottom of the machine where the numbers wear off. That's where mine was.

Hoover carpet cleaner not picking up water


Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood. A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.

In addition, make sure the recovery tank lid is properly aligned to the tank to seal.

Lastly, make sure the square duct is latched in place in front of the recovery tank, that links the nozzle plate to the tank lid.

How do you attach the upholstry attachment to your hoover steamvac


The hose hooks into the dirt bucket on the front where a clear plastic block sets. Put the hose in that slot and then hook the tube for the water at the top of the hood.

Hoover spin brush model f5914-900 wont draw water back out of carpet


Please remove the recovery tank and check and see there is a black rubber ring seal on the large vacuum tube that rises from the base to meet the bottom corner of the recovery tank. This rubber seal may have fallen off the tube and be found laying under the hood. It seals the vacuum source to the recovery tank.

Hoover steam vac deluxe - no suction and the scrubbers aren't spinning uless you tilt off the floor.


I would suspect that your turbine assembly bearings need to be replaced. also check for debris inside the brush assembly. check the intake filter under the front clear cover. verify the recovery tank lid is on securely, as well as the foam filter on the tank lid is clean.

No suction to retrieve water from carpet


The tank lid of your recovery tank is designed to engage two tabs to lock the front of the lid down on the seals. Look at the front corners of your recovery tank. You will see a tab extending out on each corner. These two tabs insert into the corresponding grooves in the lid. Once engaged, the lid folds down and the clip on the lid snaps into the back of the tank. When installed correctly, if you pull up on the front of the lid, it should NOT lift away from the tank. The front of the tank has a square "duct" that is removable for when the hose is inserted for furniture, etc. Make sure that this duct is replaced back into the tank when using on the carpet.
